Every second counts cause theres no second trys.


My name is Mr. Percy Andrew Bailey
I am only 15
I was an apprentice butcher
My father must miss me
And so must my mother
Oh how I wish I could see them again
I sent them a card to tell them I love them
I know that will never be enough
Terrible memories replay in my head
Screaming, thrashing, people still Sleeping in their beds not knowing What is coming
I had given up hope of ever being Saved, I felt every ounce of pain
Like a thousand knives had stabbed Me. I saw the bodies of those around me all frozen to death. I knew this would be me, for there was no hope. My life faded fast, my eyes began to close, my heart slowed its beat until.. I was no more. I hate this feeling, the one I have now, laying in this watery grave never knowing what my life might have been, if the Titanic hadn't sunk maybe something could have been.

This one was a project for school we had to choose a person that died on the Titanic and then write a poem about it. This poem won first place out of my whole class I'm very proud of it.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

Wow. This is such a cool perspective - a lot of my favorite poems of other people's are written from an unusually perspective. Congrats on winning first place - you should be proud of it. :)
